*** What is Cenon ? ***

Cenon is a vector graphics tool with a wide range of applications. It is built  
upon a modular graphical core, and offers a variety of applications beyond  
desktop publishing. Cenon can convert, import, and export many graphics  
formats. The modular concept allows the extension of Cenon into very  
specialized applications.

Key features:
- import/export of vector graphics formats like HPGL, PostScript,
  Gerber, DXF, and more
- Editing of graphic elements like lines, curves, arcs, text,
  complex paths, polylines, text on path etc.
- DTP functionality for exposing images, color shading,
  color separation, thumbnail images, etc.
- working with layers as well as pages
- Extension of Cenon with modules (bundles)
- Cenon runs on GNUstep, OpenStep and Mac OS X

Cenon is free software and is released under the vhf public license (vhfPL).
The vhfPL is compatible to most free software licenses.
